The Pyongyang Marathon is formally known as the Mangyongdae Prize International Marathon. The marathon event is held every year in Pyongyang – the capital of North Korea (DPRK). The marathon is AIMS certified and is categorised as an IAAF Bronze Label Road Race.

There are two Pyongyang marathon events that take place each year. The Pyongyang marathon event in April is held on the Sunday before Kim Il Sung’s birthday on 15th April. The Pyongyang Autumn marathon event is held on the last Sunday of September. The Pyongyang marathon event was first opened to all foreign amateur runners and tourists in 2014.
